Mountains

The mainland and islands of Attica will enchant you with their stunning mountain landscapes, the lush green mountainsides and the hills with the quiet paths.

Discover the four “guards” of Athens, the mountains that “embrace” the city, cool it off in the summer, produce and provide the vital oxygen, each with its own individual, beautiful and unique character.

Hike all the way to the top of the hills in the city and enjoy the breathtaking view, the dream-like sunset and the fragrant green pine trees.

Explore the mountain heavens of Attica’s mainland, follow their historic routes and marvel at nature- and man-made monuments of extraordinary beauty.

Wander on the mountains and hills of Attica’s islands, discover their treasures, hike their trails and reach their peak. The view from up there will leave you speechless, while a picturesque little church will be expecting you to provide shelter and some rest.
